Re: SPOILER *all five books* THREAD FOR Game of Thrones (TV series discussion)
I saw this idea a while ago on some forums as well. Someone picked up on it, I think last season. Never thought to much of it but I think because it's appearing again this season, I'd have to go with the on purpose and not because it looks good.
There really must be something to it if they keep doing it, especially now 3 years later from the pilot and initial logo for the show. Must be more than it just looks good.
I don't think it has appeared in the books at least yet. But it is true since they know the end perhaps they're giving us something Martin hasn't yet. I would agree it seems to be a purposeful message they're sending out.
As for it being in the Stark thing? I have no idea. Maybe I need to brush up on the White Walkers and Starks somehow having an ancient connection theories.
I know there is this entire website out there who has like 50 some odd essays dissecting the books and putting forward the hypothesis that the whole "Winter Is Coming" slogan is actually a warning that when the Starks are in trouble The White Walkers awake, going to the whole "There must always be a Stark in Winterfell" thing. So, I have no idea what any of it means.
